1975 marks the year the Beckstoffer family put down roots in Napa, pioneers of the burgeoning grape growing industry. Tuck Beckstoffer grew up among the vines, and after studying with winemaking legends both at home and abroad, Tuck determined to start making wines of his own, releasing a cabernet sauvignon in 1997 to critical acclaim and demand. The Seventy Five Wine Company (a tribute to the year 1975) was founded to create wines that express the essence of California wine country without breaking the bank. Made with grapes from Lake and Mendocino counties, this cab does just that, with a rich, bold California flair. Ruby red in the glass, with seductive aromas of strawberry preserve, and black mission figs overlaid by a touch of thyme. Generous fruit, including deep flavors of Bing cherry and black raspberry linger in the mouth for a long, satisfying finish. A year in toasted French oak (30% new) gives it lovely notes of toffee and biscotti.
